New Platform Feature: Jobs and Projects

We’re excited to announce that Lilt has a new and improved user interface and functionality for job creation! This new interface streamlines and automates project management, reducing project timelines and delivering quicker turnaround times for Lilt customers.

Previously, Lilt Platform users would create a new project for each individual source and target language pair. In the new interface, project managers can now create one streamlined job to start a multi-target language initiative, eliminating hours of repetitive, manual work.

The new interface also enables streamlined project management, with an intuitive, easy-to-use dashboard to view status and next actions for all jobs and projects.

Active jobs-1

This dashboard offers consolidated project management from one centralized tab, including project delivery, linguist assignment, job archiving, and more. 

The new interface has been implemented throughout Lilt Services, and we are excited to report that we are already seeing efficiency improvements in just a short period of time.
